Godmothered (2020) - S: Isla Fisher, Jillian Bell -- Disney+





This holiday season, be careful who you wish for. Watch the new trailer for Disney’s #Godmothered, a magical holiday comedy starring Isla Fisher and Jillian Bell, streaming on #DisneyPlus Dec. 4.

Set at Christmas time, “Godmothered” is a comedy about Eleanor, a young, inexperienced fairy godmother-in-training (Jillian Bell) who upon hearing that her chosen profession is facing extinction, decides to show the world that people still need fairy godmothers. Finding a mislaid letter from a 10-year-old girl in distress, Eleanor tracks her down and discovers that the girl, Mackenzie, is now a 40-year-old single mom (Isla Fisher) working at a news station in Boston. Having lost her husband several years earlier, Mackenzie has all but given up on the idea of “Happily Ever After,” but Eleanor is bound and determined to give Mackenzie a happiness makeover, whether she likes it or not.

This was a fun movie. Will certainly be compared to Enchanted, but other than the fantasy character thrust into the real world it goes it's own way. There's no "bad guy" and it doesn't end the way you would think, which was refreshing. If you want something light and fun, this will do it.

Loving the new holiday movies we are getting this year with this, Jingle Jangle and Christmas Chronicles 2.

It was ok, but the non-cliche ending was nice.

Both actresses are great, but obviously Jillian Bell had to hold back her adult-style comedy (think 22 Jump St). I like nasty Jillian Bell

And the music rights selection must have cost a fortune.

It was interesting to see Disney put out a movie where the message is the “happily ever after” fairy tale we’ve been peddling for 80+ years is bullshit.
